Riddoch Business and Community Association

The Riddoch Business and Community Association (RBCA) is the lead community and business organisation in the Penola and Coonawarra district of the Wattle Range Council area of the Limestone Coast.

RBCA represents and advocates on behalf of businesses, industry, community organisations and individuals, acting as a conduit to local and state governments.

The RBCA is committed to furthering and protecting the interests, needs and aspirations of our members ultimately improving the liveability of our district, benefitting the generations of today and tomorrow.



Our vision is a strong, united, prosperous and vibrant business and community landscape.



  • We aim to achieve our vision through the following objectives:
  • thorough and regular consultation with the community;
  • giving back to the community;
  • promoting member businesses and organisations to the wider public;
  • encouraging and promoting local trade;
  • exchanging knowledge/opportunities and fostering collaboration between members;
  • encouraging visitation;
  • assisting with and promoting community, business and government investment opportunities and ideas available in the district;
  • promoting our district as a location of choice to live for population growth;
  • fostering multi-generational leadership and encouraging volunteerism and acts of kindness;
  • leading as a business and community representative body and acting as a conduit for members where applicable, in a non-political, non-sectarian manner.
